Teaching yet again, the School of Arms curriculum; Master of Arms, John Bednarski, traveled to Chester England to teach a seminar focusing upon the Tortal Family method, a major component of the School of Arms curriculum. Core basics were covered including, single stick (sword), double stick, footwork, foundational cinco teros, and foundational partner drills. The students whom attended the full seminar, were allowed to grade to the first rank, and all passed admirably.
